Navigation With The TVR’s
Posted by Max Hunter on 20th April, 2016
On Saturday I was out with Ruth, Claire, Nicolle, Katie and Eliot. Most of whom are Trainee Volunteer Rangers for a 10 week block, working with the Nevis Landscape Partnership. The day was aimed at refreshing/developing navigation on the hill, and it was a training day organised by Susan Nicol of the Friends of Nevis and Nevis Landscape Partnership.
We looked at using macro+micro features and focused on a 4 D strategy (direction, distance, description, duration) to navigate and relocate. It was chilly with the arctic air over Scotland, but we had terrific views over towards Ben Nevis – which still has plenty of winter climbing available.
